Rocky Mount High School’s Gryphon Theatrical students are set to perform “Mamma Mia!” — a Greek Island comedy that features the 1970s music of Abba.

On the eve of her wedding, a daughter's quest to discover the identity of her father brings three men from her mother's past back to the island they last visited 20 years ago. This sets the scene for a hilarious series of assumptions and miscommunication until the identity of the true father is revealed. This musical blockbuster will fill the theater with joyful music and dancing that celebrate life, love and family.

The theater arts department at Rocky Mount High School gives opportunities to high school and middle school students who have a passion to perform on-stage and work behind the scenes. This program provides students with skills that will help them in their future careers, as well as building self-confidence, leadership, accountability and dedication to community.

They work together as a school, building a program as a family along with our community partners. This production is directed by NYC actress and ECU alum Kristin Lundberg, who is a native of Rocky Mount.

Performances will be held at 7 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday in the Black Box Theater at Rocky Mount High School. Tickets are $8 for the general public and $5 for all students.
